Live Q&A with Dr David Cavan on Monday 25 June 2018

Diabetes.co.uk will be conducting a live Q&A with internationally renowned diabetes expert and author Dr David Cavan on Monday 25 June.

Dr Cavan will be answering questions from the diabetes community live on Facebook from 6:30-7pm (1830-1930). Questions can be posted in advance on to our Facebook and Twitter feed during the live session.

Dr Cavan has more than 25 years’ experience working as a diabetes doctor. Formerly the Director of Policy and Programmes at the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), he also worked as a consultant physician for 17 years at the Bournemouth Diabetes and Endocrine Centre.

An esteemed author, Dr Cavan wrote Reverse Your Diabetes in 2014 and follow-up Reverse Your Diabetes Diet in 2016 to help improve dietary management of type 2 diabetes.

In Reverse Your Diabetes, Dr Cavan outlined a simple, clear programme to put type 2 diabetes into remission. The book quickly became an Amazon Best Seller in the Health Book category.

Reverse Your Diabetes Diet further addressed the importance of diet and included 60 low carb, no-sugar recipes along with meal plans.

Most recently, in partnership with Diabetes.co.uk, he penned Take Control of Type 1 Diabetes: A comprehensive guide to self-management and staying well.  The book aims to simplify the management of type 1 diabetes to make the condition much easier to control and reduce the risk of too low and too high blood sugar levels.

Dr Cavan’s approach leans on his many years of experience working with people with type 1 diabetes, helping to lift the burden felt by individuals and families affected by the condition.

As well as conducting research into the intensive management of type 1 diabetes using multiple injections and pump therapy, and the development of self-management education programmes, Dr Cavan helped launch the education programme BERTIE (for people with type 1 diabetes) and the BDEC e-learning programme.

If you want to ask Dr. Cavan a question, send it over and log on before 1830 on Monday 25 June for the live Q&A.
